Icebreaker of the month August 2009


Find some common ground

This works best for small groups or for each small group sitting together as teams (4-6 learners in each team).

Give the group a specific time (perhaps 5 minutes) to write a list of everything they all have in common.  Tell them to avoid the obvious (“we’re all taking this course”). When the time is up, ask each group how many items they have listed.

For fun, ask them to announce some of the most interesting items.

This is a great way of building team spirit as well as getting strangers talking to each other.
